How can we improve Azure Storage?

Support If-Modified-Since precondition in blob enumeration APIs

(Unless I've missed it somewhere) It would be real nice if last modification time filtered blob enumerations could be applied server-side.

    ListBlob should support if-modified-since header.
    Azure Search team is currently supporting (preview) indexing blob storage content.
    Their indexer can be scheduled to crawl the storage container, which by default leverages last-modified property of the blobs.

    If I have to implement such feature, short of enumerating through ALL blobs (meta-data), I should be able to query "listblobs if-modified-since".

    I wont be surprised, if Azure Storage team has provided "Azure Search" team a premium API. Won't it be nice if the API is available for us all?
